In this contest the subject can be absolutely anything but it must be positioned exactly in the centre of the photograph. Furthermore, the subject should only take up a small proportion of the image ie. less than around 25% of the overall photograph. Entries can be in colour or black and white.
Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. You can see all the images uploaded to a contest, but will need to rate them to see how they’re ranked once the rating period begins.
Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
